He sounds like a Steve Webb replacement.

Webb and Cal seem pretty close in terms of talent now.

That’s a pretty stacked roster.

It really seems like any of the stronger countries could win this year. CAN has a great roster but not one of their legendary ones, Finland has Kakko/Jokiharju/Kupari/Ylonen/Pekka-Luukkonen, Sweden has plenty of talent, Czech's have Kaut/Necas/Zadina...it's going to be a really good tournament.

edit: Apparently Skarek, who most people figured would be CZE's starter didn't even dress, let alone start, tonight. Maybe he's sick or something, but if he's not that's pretty hilarious

Unless you are a fan of Canada. 14-0 is a video game score

I thought Wahlstrom had a mostly solid game, nothing outstanding though. The penalty shot that was called because of him was total horseshit.

He had six shots so I guess he was pretty active along with the rest of the team evidently😂

Yeah, I was actually pretty impressed with his passes too. He had a few good feeds to Hughes.

Stayed up to watch 2/3 of the SWE/FIN game. SUPER glad we moved that 15th pick to Vegas to dump one year of Grabovski so we could use the space to sign Komarov. Brannstrom is going to be a (frank)ing offensive stud on the blueline.

I don’t remember how that all went down trying to forget the last regimes stupidity as best I can but it sounds wonderful. Also happy we used that space on Komarov I hear he’s a really good defensive player.

Forgetting Komarov, Brannstrom had both of SWE's goals last night and looked pretty awesome

We probably would have selected the next Michael Dal Cole anyway.

So much for the 15th pick not being a big deal.

It also prevented them from taking one of our unprotected players. We had a ton of them b/c everyone we wanted to leave unprotected had a No trade clause.

I know why they did it, but the simple fact that they HAD to do it because they mismanaged things so poorly is what's so infuriating.

When Brannstrom turns into a high-end offensive defenseman in a few years and we're still complaining about Nick Leddy and Adam Pelech it's really going to suck.

Anyway, I was really just pointing out in the humor in it. Not griping over something that happened over a year ago.

I remember Pelech and Berube being a protection priority 😂

I think Pelech was just a throw-in.

https://www.nhl.com/islan...rotected-list/c-289973874

They had to protect Boychuk due to his NMC and they didn't want to lose Pulock, Hamonic, or Leddy, so they were forced to go the eight skater and a goalie route, instead of 7F, 3D, 1G. It was probably a coin-flip between Pelech and Mayfield.

I don’t know I remember reading that they were both priorities to Snow.

Whatever, it's behind us...thank god. Eventually the pain of losing pajama boy will be trumped by the joy of gaining Trotz. I still have my reservations about Lou, but so far it's been mostly positive.
